Our lunch visit was scheduled through the tour company we hired for the day, the itinerary did not list the name or location of lunch so we were a bit wary of what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise! The owner came straight to...the table to greet us he was charming and charismatic. Our server was attentive and a very sweet young woman. She made sure our drinks were never empty, fresh bread was brought to the table immediately, followed by many small plates of fresh and delightful local food. Next time I am in Giza, I will have to stop in again for another lunch and visit. Loved the vibrant decor and ambiance. Very authentic and welcoming.More

This restaurant is amazing! This is a great family-friendly option, and it still has lots of local foods. The service is fast, and the waiters are very kind. The prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant, you will love it!

My wife & I ate lunch here as part of a pyramid tour package. The cost of the meal was included in the tour price. We were only required to cover the cost of any beverages that we consumed. As far a portion size, they...put out way more food than an average adult would consume for lunch. I have a feeling that they do this to satisfy picky foreign eaters. They probably figure that if they put out enough variety of food, that the picky foreign eater is bound to like something. I consider myself within the cadre of picky foreign eaters. However, let me tell you that I enjoyed everything they put out. They started with a soup, then a variety of dips ( hummus, eggplant, etc.) , cooked vegetables, and then a mixed plate of cooked meat. The staff was very friendly, attentive and spoke English very well. I recommend this restaurant for lunch of an informal dinner.More

We had a great late dinner at the El Dar Darak. Pleny of good food and no pressure to leave enough though they were closing. Even though it was the end of his day the manager came by multiple times to help us take pictures...and joke with us. The restaurant is is close to the Great Pyramids and a great stop after that tour.More
